Prince Harry and his soon-to-be wife Meghan Markle made their first public appearance of the year on Tuesday, Jan. 9.
The Prince and his fiancée were greeted by hundreds of elated fans as they arrived in the south London neighborhood of Brixton to visit a community radio station called Reprezent 107.3 FM.
Prince Harry, 33, and the Suits actress, 36, looked all "loved up" as they walked hand-in-hand, smiling, waving and even shaking hands with the crowd of well-wishers who lined up to meet and greet the royal couple.

The engaged couple was scheduled to meet volunteers and young people working at the radio station, which provides training to the youth in the field of radio and broadcasting.
The radio station, which was set up in 2011 after a spurt in the number of knife attacks across London, also campaigns for issues that affect young people, including "domestic violence, unemployment, and more."
The station is supported by one of the charitable organizations of Prince Harry, brother Prince William, and his wife, Duchess Kate of Cambridge. Markle will also be a part of the foundation once she ties the knot with Harry at the Windsor Castle on May 19.

Hundreds of fans showed up on the streets of Brixton and started cheering the couple as soon as they arrived. Station founder and CEO, Shane Carey, also said that news of their visit had led to "massive excitement" in the neighborhood.
This marks the couple's second public appearance since the announcement of their engagement. On Dec. 1, 2017, Harry and his bride-to-be paid a visit to the Terrence Higgins Trust World AIDS Day charity fair to meet representatives from organizations that help HIV/AIDS victims in Nottingham.
Markle Deletes Social Media Accounts
Shortly after their appearance, Markle deleted all of her social media accounts. The actress and UN ambassador used to be quite active on Twitter and Instagram but seems like she's preparing for life as a member of the royal family.
"Ms Markle is grateful to everyone who has followed her social media accounts over the years," Kensington Palace said in a statement. "However, as she has not used these accounts for some time, she has taken the decision to close them."
